Great car, shame about the ex­tras

CAR (UK) - - Car Interactive - Steve Newell

VIA EMAIL Hav­ing owned a 550 Maranello and a 599 GTB, I’m well past be­ing shocked at Fer­rari’s abil­ity to tease money out of buy­ers’ wal­lets. Still, even I was taken aback by the op­tions listed in your hy­po­thet­i­cal build of a GTC4 Lusso T (Spec Ex­pert, July). In par­tic­u­lar, £33k spent on a ques­tion­able paint job (there are plenty ndof lovely colours in Fer­rari’s stan­dard palette), a sun­roof and painted al­loys. Yikes! The to­tal op­tion spend ran to more than £100k. The world of su­per-luxury (though not just con”ined to cars, I might add) has truly gone mad. And this, surely, is proof, if proof were needed. Nice car, all the same!
